, Celebrity

Games of Thrones and Star Wars will finally collide. Well, sort of.

Emilia Clarke—who plays Daenerys Targaryen (aka the Mother of Dragons) on the hit HBO series—has just been cast in the upcoming untitled Han Solo standalone movie. The news was announced on starwars.com today, although very little is known about what her actual part will be. “Clarke’s role will round out a dynamic cast of characters that Han and Chewie will encounter on their adventures,” the site simply said.

The 30-year-old star joins actors Alden Ehrenreich and Donald Glover in the flick, who were previously cast as the title characters Han Solo and Lando Calrissian. The movie is set prior to the original Star Wars trilogy and will be directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller.
